January 1-3 King Tides Offered Glimpse into Future

January 24, 2022

On January 1-3, we experienced the year's first King Tides, which occur when there is alignment of the gravitational pull between the sun, moon, and Earth. King Tides show in stark reality how the one-to-two foot rise in sea level expected during the next few decades will look along our shorelines. Our naturalists streamed two live events to share the future effects on the shorelines and how we are implementing plans for sea level rise and habitat and shoreline resiliency. Watch the King Tides Around the Bay videos on YouTube, Into the Delta and Along the Shoreline.
